Offsetting Climate Change in Rivers

 ... may be done by improving water quality.

Ways to help include:

* Plant more trees along rivers.  Shading the water cools it and reduces evaporative losses.

* Protect forests near rivers.  They trap rain and release it slowly.  Big forests even make their own weather.  This contributes to cooler, deeper rivers.

* Avoid taking water out of rivers.  Deeper water tends to be cooler and cleaner than shallow water.
